PechaKucha Presentation

The Explonauts Open Up the Way

PRESENTED ON JUL 01, 2015
IN NANTES @ VOL 10

"Pecha Kucha is the first time we wander around without walking. We would like to share our exploration experience. The Explonauts are a moving group of people, who get together to discover territories they would never cross spontaneously. Through our explorations we aim to create an imaginary geography, thereby building and intensifying collectively the perception of our nearby environments. The urban and suburban explorations are public rituals, which aim to question the development of the territories we discover. But they also seek to reconsider the act of walking and build a space where to meet others in and on a new way … Topo 10, Between the lines, Decrescendo…are the three headlines of our last experiences. For the near future we would like to play with the walk itself: getting blind, being led by mathematics,... first intuitions we want to feed with your ideas.

We generally use microphone to take the pulse of the territories we cross, but this time we will try to take you along, to inspire you, and create an explosion of Explonauts in the very heart of you." Les Explonautes
APPLAUD THIS!
